to provide a very secure environment. you literally can't do it. if your standard is nobody can be at risk at a large public event, we're never going to have another u 2 concert. there are basic procedures for events like this. they're well established. we've learned from everything from the '96 olympic bombings to what you should do. are this they going to do a review? did we do the due diligence? they'll have to. it will be pretty clear whether that was done or not. and then we'll move on from there and we may learn some things to improve. we've got a pittsburgh marathon coming up, other things. you can't stop these public events. you can't make them perfectly secure, but you can do due diligence. the key point is the best way to stop these attacks is good intelligence, good police enforcement that goes out and finds the perpetrators before they do something. >> you can't protect every inch of a 26.2 mile race of course, that's for sure. james carafano, security expert in washington. thank you so much for being with us. really appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. >> reporter: thanks s
. they are mostly used in environments for the environment, whether it be the sand in the desert or the jungle, it would interfere with the explosive. that has been traditionally their use. that being said, these things are easy to find, easy to make. i don't have to tell you, you can look up on the internet and see the step by step instructions out to do that. and matter of assembling the various ingredients you would do to put it together. that to expand on what he was saying, they are getting a lot of evidence how the bomb was made but they don't have a lot of evidence about who did this or why. the actual evidence that would lead to the person or persons involved. >> this suggests a slightly higher level of them what was first thought yesterday and if so, does that narrow down the net of potential suspects? >> it does. the black powder, the acetone, peroxide, you don't want to let it get went. absolutely right. you want to protect the explosives, the detonator. when this bomb went off, talked to a couple of people and their first reaction was what is happening to people coming back from af
police department in the world, something i'm very proud of. but it's a complex environment. 8.4 million people. we wanted to know more about the neighborhoods that we were policing. that's the report that we did. the so-called demographics unit since change theed name, but that's what you're reporting about. it was never put in place to generate leads. it was put in place for us to have contextual information. people will say you have people not generating leads. but we generate leads in other ways, but not from that particular unit. >> how important is it it to have the cooperation of the muslim community? because one thing i'm struck by, it is citizens who report things. so the time square bomber, the police was a block away but it was a local vender who tips you off. in this case, it it appears that this guy who got his legs blown off said i want to tell you something. i saw this guy dropping a bag off. so is it important to have a cooperative relationship between a police department and these communities that you're looking at? >> sure. and we have a strong working relationship with
basis. simply because the threat environment has changed doesn't mean our constitution is so flexible that we can ignore its provisions. i do think that what we ought to call on the administration to do is come forward with a new structure and to articulate how the rule of law will support protecting the country in this new threat environment. there wasn't a case for treating this brother as an enemy combatant and i think it was very premature for my senate colleagues to call for him to be treated that way. >> congressman, thank you very much. >>> up next the attorney for american wife of tamerlan tsarnaev said she had no knowledge of the attacks. does that add up? and the destructive nature of the pressure cooker bomb and what can be done to stop them? we have a special investigation. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could get used to this. [ male announcer ] yes, you coul
answer. you can reduce the risk of an incident but you cannot create a fail/safe environment. certainly not along a 26-mile plus path that goes through commercial, residential areas. it is difficult enough at an ampitheater, race track, gymnasium, or stadium. i think we'll see in the future perhaps additional security but there are certain venues that it is very, very difficult to maximize to a point where you're fairly competent that nothing can happen and certainly a marathon is one of those kinds of events. as you and i both know every day in this country there are multiple venues where hundreds if not thousands if not tens of thousands of people for social, political, athletic reasons show up. so there will be lessons learned based on this tragedy. there will be probably a little more inconvenience down the road about -- i read with great interest that the london marathon is going on. pittsburgh is having a marathon next week. they have not canceled that. they're encouraging the runners to go. there was an interesting piece by tom friedman today in the "new york times." he basically
a different approach and a different legal basis. but simply because the threat environment changed doesn't mean that our constitution is so flexible that we can ignore its provisions. i do think that what we ought to call the administration to do is come forward with a new structure and to articulate how the rule of law will support protecting the country in this new threat environment. but there just wasn't the case for treating this brother as an enemy combatant and i think it was very premature for some of my senate colleagues to call for limb to be treated that way. >> interesting point. also interesting we need to really reconsider. thank you very much, congressman. we appreciate your time. "outfront" next, authorities stop another terrorist attack. this one on a train between new york city and canada. we have a i love live update on and talk to a man who was there when police finally captured suspect number two on that boat in friday. how police talked him out of the boat. here's a word you should keep in mind. unbiased. some brokerage firms are. but way too many aren't. why? becau
environment, but aided dramatically by all the video that has been made available. >> i think that's right. i think this is going to raise a debate long term in america like the debates we had on gun control in the wake of events that were so tragic in the past year or so. people are initially going to say, hey, look at the advantage you get in this 21st century environment where you have surveillance cameras everywhere. an environment that the europeans, by the way, are way ahead of us on. a lot more surveillance in europe than there is here. i suspect over the course of a month or two or three months americans will step back and say, hey, that might have aided that investigation but we're not sure we want to live in that kind of security culture. >> and we can't draw, phil, any hard conclusions about one of these bombs was in a pressure cooker. that's obviously available very easily. you can't draw any conclusions whether that's a signature of a domestic or a foreign terrorist. >> actually, i would draw conclusions. but more about what it's not than what it is. when you look at the people i
they have total visual environment, they are trying to evacuate any residents in the area from the neighborhood, and as was noted, now they went to move, the flash-bangs, be methodical. the one thing, they're not certain but they're operating under the assumption there are explosives in that yard. >> you know, i think one of the best examples for your viewers, i'm sure many of them saw "zero dark thirty." there was an initial assault phase, helicopters crashing in and all, then it seemed like minutes went by as people then started deliberately moving through and that's kind of a parallel to what you're going to see happen here tonight. but i think within a few hours of darkness, this could be favorably resolved. >> one of our producers is near the scene. lawrence, what are you seeing and hearing? >> well, i'm at washburn and chester streets, which is about a block from franklin street, where i'm told from a boston police source they have a suspect cornered in the backyard of a home. i'm also told that they're using flash-bangs to try to get him out. the number one priority for
in arizona for the pat tillman run. >> it's not a secure environment, we can't put fences around it, can't put an officer every two feet, and we rely on all eyes out there. >> with so many groups out there, so many large events, regardless of the event, the security is knowing of the threat before the event occurs. that means intelligence and lots of cameras, electronic surveillance, and more law enforcement. >> i think the public, since 9/11, said we'll deal with that. >>> why finding out who carried out the boston bombing will help security officials everywhere. >> that was miguel marquez. we're learning more about this let goring to the white house. and now this letter, as we learned, is very, very similar to a ricin-laced letter set to a mississippi senator this week. we're awaiting this press conference with jay carney. >> yes, what i can tell you is that according to the street service on tuesday, a letter addressed to the president, that contained a suspicious substance, was intercepted at an off sight mail facility. if there is something suspicious or dangerous in it it can be sc
's going to be a lot of challenges running events in these open environments like a marathon. there's 26 miles, it's going to be very difficult, but there are a the will the of things that event organizers working wi ini law enforcement can do. >> dan, thank you so much. the boston red sox are doing their part to help their hometown heal. how they are bringing a sense of normalcy to the city. we'll head back live to fenway park in a few minutes. >>> welcome back to cnn's conning coverage of the terrorist attacks in boston. the city is beginning to return to normal and we can really get a sense of that at fenway park where the red sox are back in action today. before the first pitch, there was a solemn moment of silence. >> as we think of our 176 adults and children who were injured, including officer richard donahue, won't you join us as we observe a moment of silence, contemplation and prayer and in particular for the 58 who are still hospitalized. thank you. we wish each of you a speedy recovery. >> now let's go back to john berman a the ballpark. i'm wearing a red sox hat. i just want
to protect your device from the environment. that's generally where they've been used. colombia, thailand, maybe even in pakistan. so it is kind of odd that they would use that here in a domestic setting. but, again, they don't know -- they don't have any suspect at all. >> it's also important to point out that this is an investigation where all of the resources and intelligence community are being used and they will have a backlog of intelligence they have to go through, intercept, satellite intelligence, signal intelligence, which they can monitor all of this stuff in realtime. >> they can't. and from what they monitor on a daily basis, minute-by-minute basis, from known suspects around the world, they had zero indication from this event. now you go back based on what happened and what you do know, you check cell phone towers and those international conversations and run your traffic through suspicious groups around the world. just speaking to the boston law enforcement source, a federal source earlier today, and a sense of is it domestic? is it international, the answer i got from both
may have already been present in the environment. in fact, we won't know with some certainty until the laboratory completes its final review. away from the scene yesterday afternoon, the jttf began its investigation. immediately after the bombing the fbi initiated a command post that was assigned to the jttf. intelligent analyst and analysts and personnel from every agency associated with jttf and many others on their own including boston pd and mass state police, more than 1,000 law enforcement officers across many agencies had been assigned to this investigation via the command post. they began canvasing sources, reviewing government and public source data bases, and conducting interviews with eyewitnesses and others to determine who is responsible for this crime. we are doing this methodically, carefully, yet with a sense of urgency. all across the nation and around the world, the force of the united states is working hard to locate those responsible. already the fbi has received more than 2,000 tips as of noon today. many of which have already been reviewed, analyzed, and vette
with it in such a really horrific environment. and people were able to do the things they had to do quickly, efficiently, it was really the most collaborative team effort that i have ever seen. i've been doing this now for over 20 years. i get involved in a number of other situations or events. really not to this extent. certainly not to the degree that we saw, with this one. but this is one that brought everybody to the table. and it was a remarkable effort from the people who dealt with the patients in the field to the ones who dealt with them in the hospital. it's difficult emotionally, when you're dealing with a very, very injured, young, young child. it raises more feelings, but i think the key is to be able to do what you do. and do it as quickly as you can. >> you've done an extraordinary job. you and your staff i want to thank you for your service, on behalf of everyone from around the world. i'm sure your actions saved a lot of lives. for that we're all incredibly grateful. thank you. >> thank you very much. >>> we'll be right back. zap technology. arrival. with hertz gold plus rewards, you ski
, there were concerns last night that the presence of ammonium nitrate would make the environment around the plant volatile. the impact of the explosion was massive. the destruction in that four to five block radius around the plant overwhelming. most importantly, the human toll is still being assessed and as i say, we're just not speculating on numbers at this point. there's too much riding on it. right now, we do want to show you some images of the blast itself that drive home what this town is dealing with right now. take a look. >> you okay? >> yeah. >> you okay? >> i can't hear. i can't hear. >> cover your ears. >> get out of here. please get out of here. >> oh, my god. >> please get out of here. please get out of here. dad, please get out of here. >> oh, [ bleep ]! [ sirens ] >> i don't even recognize. i have no idea where i am. look at this. >> it had to have been a plane. what else could it have been? oh, my god. andrea lives in those apartments! >> oh, my god. >> oh, my god. >> i thought something fell on my house. >> that your kid? >> it's my grandbaby. he was in the apartment
environment. that it is potentially boobietrapped. and they have to proceed with great caution. so right now, they have the first location and then the second location, which is very hot. very active. so, again, anywhere he's been, anybody who he may have been with, that they are being treated as a potential threat, a potential danger. all right, deb, thank you very much. please, keep us in the loop and stay at a safe distance. >>> they have reason to believe because when they were in the chase last night, they were throwing explosive devices out of car. the brother, who was killed and allegedly run over by his own brother had ochb an explosive device, which may or may not have detonated, to a certain degree. >> yeah, we're unsure. at some point -- i know you're still there, just bring you pack in here. what's your belief on how quickly they're able to wrap this up. i know that we, sitting here hosting this, that our viewers, everybody is hoping and anticipating that this would happen relatively quickly. given that this area is kwaurdenned off, do you believe that this is is something that g
shopping, busy tourist, and busy business environment. so there are so many surveillance cameras. so by the city, some by private institutions, including the businesses. so there will be hundreds of angles they have to look through. those are just the cameras in place. obviously we know so many individuals have videos carrying their phones. so the investigation will take forever. and the crowd complicates. what they're looking for is nip right in that area and left just before the explosions, as opposed to the chaos that happens just after the explosions. >> and john, are they saying, and brian maybe you heard this, as well. have they said publicly if they know exactly where the devices were? you know, in a garbage can, a mailbox or -- do they know? >> i was told by one source earlier the suspicion, and i want to emphasize the suspicion. they will look through the debris. and the bomb experts can figure out if there's a mailbox been broken up or a garbage can, they can look for explosive materials inside it. i was told earlier they suspect a mailbox or garbage pale but did not have d
of the environment that were involved in the blast. >> reporter: that same trauma surgeon saying some of the patients have to come back again and again for repeat operations. also saying that he has never seen anything, john, like the volume, the quantity of people that were rushed into his er immediately following this attack. >> that's what we keep hearing, poppy. the numbers were just staggering. so how prepared were they really for this flood of victims? >> reporter: you can say fortunately they were prepared. fortunately for a situation as they wished would never happen because they told us they prepare for things like this, massachusetts general, saying that within minutes after they got their first patient and after the attack they instituted an incident command system within five to ten minutes. they had enough surgeons. they even told us they had people flying back in, coming within hours back to the hospital from trips to try to help and do everything that they could. but they were prepared and they do have the hands needed at this point in time, john. >> you know, poppy, i did. i heard fro
. >> is it something that came from the environment or is it concentrated enough to make you lead you to believe they came from the bomb. >> i believe they came from the bomb but i can't be sure. >> how many amputations have you performed and how many are planned? >> if i have my numbers are right, we have performed four amputations and there are two more limbs that are at risk, but i hope that we will save those l legs. [ inaudible question ] yes, they are in intensive care. they are in critical condition. but at this point we have stabilized their vital signs and their hemodynamic situation is under control. >> what are their injuries, can you describe what has placed them in such critical condition? >> most of the injuries were, again, lower extremity major injuries. from these injuries they bled a lot. we controlled the bleeding rather rapidly, but certainly they lost a lot of blood and that created d physiologic problems. [ inaudible question ] as far as i know, all of them are americans. >> can you tell us an age range, doctor, of your patients? >> the younger patient so far was 28 years o
's pat tillman run. >> extremely challenging, not a secure environment. we can't put fences around, can't put an officer every two feet. we rely on every set of officers. >> so many radicalized groups, so many individuals out there, so many large events and soft targets, regardless of the event, the best security is knowing of the threat before the events occur. that means intelligence and lots of cameras, electronic surv surveillance and more law enforcement. >> for the most part, the public has said we'll accept that, it's the world we live in. >> reporter: identifying who carried out the bombing will help security officers everywhere, but no way will it change the threat to large public events. russian officials have also said in sochi for the winter olympics, they are watching what happens. and it's music festival season. it's the coachella vest festival and 4th of july events are very open events as well. all authorities looking at boston. hoping once they figure out what happened in boston it will help them go forward and make their venues more secure as well. don. >> all right. m
that things will be okay. don't try to control your environment, that is not going to work, whether you have a higher power concept, prayer can be helpful, faith number one. number two, hope, do not lose hope. this is going to get better, we are taking care of things as the president assured he would and there's hope for the future. finally and most importantly, important relationships, important people in our lives need to be kept close and think in terms of regulating our emotions by using other people. proximity and intimacy of others is exceedingly important at times like this. >> dr. drew, what you're saying there, the two things that are intangible, faith, believing in things unseen, hope, hoping the sun will be out tomorrow, and also relationships with other people. times like this, even for myself, sometimes when you're overwhelmed with issues like this, the last thing you want to do is be with someone else, you want to be by yourself and get through the emotion on your own. >> right. it's -- i would resist isolating. to sit and be calm and be sort and be calm with nature is fine but

whether this came from the environment, right? but it is not. >> i can tell you, as a person who has done trauma surgery, it can be difficult to tell sometimes when you're actually taking some of the shrapnel, wear exactly did it come from. but now they're saying without a doubt, we asked a few times, that there were nails, carpenter nails specifically and, quote, bb-like metal within some of these patients. and so they -- they know for sure it came from the explosive device. this is a doctor saying that based on their medical examination. this wasn't just debris that was lying around. >> what about also quickly in terms of the amputations, i was hearing one of the doctors saying last night, some of the patients were coming to them very injured, bleeding and saying, take whatever you need, i want to be alive. that has to be tough for a doctor, though. >> these are i think heart breaking decisions. it is a -- you can make the decision fairly quickly if that's going to be the best course of action. >> life or death. >> if you don't do the amputation, sometimes it can mean infection, that ca

of our natural environment, and it's not -- it's not the best feeling in the world to feel like you're stuck indefinitely in your apartment, and you don't feel particularly safe. like our windows aren't bulletproof or anything. and to hear cop cars going speeding by every few minutes. it's jarring. >> and have you been -- obviously your husband was texted by his work not to come in to work so you were alerted as to what the situation was. but we've been told that police were robo calling or what's called a reverse 911 calling all residents of watertown. have you been told -- >> let's just tell you what's happening behind us right now. just to be clear, what's happening right now is that police cars are behind us right now, and businesses, filled -- filled with police are driving right behind us right now. presumably headed i don't know where, because the scope of this investigation is getting wider and wider by the minute. we just saw two buses filled with law enforcement personnel leaving us. they're headed west. that could easily be to the watertown area. which is the epicenter of
. two reasons for this. one, urban environments are used to the advantage of the suspect. less options they have to runaround, better it is and also for public safety. also, during the initial car chase, the brothers showed an ability to bring in a hostage and that is at issue also. and we'll take a look at a live picture. what do we have going on? tell me again, control room? what do you want me to go to? okay, elizabeth cohen reports that the fbi is coming out of the suspect's home right now. pretexturaly we have to figure out what that means? elizabeth, can you hear me? what's going on right now? >> i sure can hear you. a dozen fbi agents with rifles just came out of 410 norfolk street, the address of the man they are looking for. they had assault rifles. they did not have anyone with them. they have widened this crime scene area, it was a lot smaller literally five minutes ago. pushed back all the media, pushed back all the residents and really about a half an hour or so ago, evacuating residents, som some coming out with their pajamas. a dozen fbi agents came out of 410 norfolk st
